Ben Borkowski & Friends



Ben Borkowski & Friends

The Ben Borkowski & Friends project started around 2003. With various rotating accompanists through the years, Ben's music has taken on a style of its own, mixing upbeat, funky grooves with singer/songwriter stories, with plenty of instrumental jamming to gel them together. Once called a "hippie crooner," Ben sings soulful, upbeat music to keep his audience's feet tapping. Ben is comfortable in a solo-acoustic setting, but loves most playing with his current band. Each member adds an outward extension to the core of the music, together meandering in and out of melodies, song structures, and long musical tangents.
